just, ugh. Really?

I'm sure the advertisers don't hate fat people; they just think an overweight body is disgusting enough that someone will pay them to cover up an image of it. Has it occurred to them that any of their potential clients might be overweight? Or hairy?

The nose-picking one fits in well, because obviously being overweight is just another disgusting bad habit.

I don't get it??
is it so you won't have to see an overweight person... I hope that's not the point.. if so I did get it all along, just hoping I'm wrong and that it's above my head or something

Tbh it's the first thing I thought... I hate both that my mind immediately went there and that they know that and that's the point (cos honestly I can't see another reason about that picture)... it is awful. I wonder how on earth the model must feel seeing that's what they did with her picture...

Well I thought the same thing. I'd like to think I'm not judgemental of overweight people, as it can be as much a psychological problem as an ED, but I just don't see what else it could mean either.
I think most people would come to the same conclusion.
Pretty cruel really. It would make me NOT advertise with the company because I didn't like their attitude.
